Default need a new mobo

Hey my ASUS board I was building; I haven't RMA. I think I am going with another board. I'm scared if I just get it replaced, I will continue to have problems. I want a top of the line board for a E66000 with PC6400 RAM. I need atleast 2 USB2.0 headers on the board, atleast 4 (prefer 5) SATA headers, I'd like and external SATA, and the usual. I have always bought ASUS; and if I could, I'd like to stick with them, but will buy another brand if it's a solid board.

try the P5B-E instead, it has everything you want as well as it's cheaper and overclocks better.

it's also ASUS. I like a few other boards too but you wanted asus and thats a really good one.

That board is very buggy as well...a lot more buggy than the P5B Deluxe. The only real good thing about that board and why it's so much is due to Full SLI compatible but since you got a P5B Deluxe originally i don't think that's the main selling point for you.

P5W is also a good board an the 975 chipsets aren't that buggy either.
